|Title:||Freight Logistics in the New Zealand Context|
Institute of Transport Studies
|Abstract:||It is well known that within an economic region, shippers’ practice of logistics is shaped significantly by various factors, such as transportation regulation. The precise purpose of this paper is to describe these factors and their influence on logistics practice in the New Zealand context. We first discuss the various modes of domestic freight transport as well as the deregulation and privatization of the transportation sector of the New Zealand economy. We also examine international shipping and airfreight in the context of New Zealand’s foreign trade. We then identify three sets of contextual factors (structural, regulatory, and developmental) that, in the New Zealand situation, shape shippers’ practice of freight logistics.|
